Rim sherd from a large ovoid storage jar, with medium height tubular neck and prominent rolled rim. Coating of mud around the neck, presumably from the stopper; otherwise, the surfaces are untreated. The vessel was coil made, with a pointed base, and hand turned from the shoulder up. Evenly fired (to a buff color), gray break.
